The Biblical Archaeology Society (BAS) has recently published a must-read for dig directors with the imposing and somewhat intimidating title Cyber-Archaeology in the Holy Land—The Future of the Past. It is written by Tom Levy and his team from the University of California, San Diego, who have been excavating at the Edomite copper-mining site in Faynan, Jordan, since 1997. According to the Bible, the site was visited by the Israelites on their Exodus journey from Egypt (Numbers 33:43).
